2020 Year-End Astrology: A Once in 40 Lifetimes Event
Jupiter swooped into the party beginning in March, moving into close conjunction with Pluto three times this year, each time setting off a new wave of positive cases. This Saturn-Pluto-Jupiter stellium is sticking around for the rest of 2020 and it’s a once-in-4,000-year event. These three planets have not been together in Capricorn since times so ancient, the Egyptians were the world power.
In late May, Saturn stuck a toe into Aquarius, sparking a tidal wave of social justice outcries just before retrograde season came upon us this summer to make sure to back the car over us a couple more times just to emphasize the point.
As we headed into the fall, we experienced an intense Mercury retrograde in Scorpio and Mars retrograde in Aries, fueling paranoia, anger, and conspiracy around the U.S. election. Mercury stationed direct on election day and Mars just ten days later, alleviating a whole lot of collective angst and pulling us back from the point of boiling over, but the universe had something bigger in store…
At the beginning of November, Jupiter began to catch up to Saturn for a once-in-every-200 years conjunction–STILL WITHIN THE BOUNDS OF OUR ONCE-IN-EVERY-4,000-YEARS STELLIUM– which will culminate in the first degree of Aquarius on our Winter Solstice, December 21st…and did I mention there’s a full moon eclipse in Gemini during this period as well??? Holy shit that’s an intense sky.
But What Does it MEAN?
This period of time between the beginning of November and late January will transformational in ways we have not seen on this planet in literally ages. Pluto, Jupiter, and Saturn in Capricorn have laid waste to life as we know it in 2020. The things that could not stand the tests of time have been rent asunder. Imagine emerging from hiding after a category 5 hurricane and surveying the damage (yet another apt analogy for 2020, which saw a record Atlantic hurricane season). Anything not left standing was too weak to survive and must be rebuilt, and so we must rebuild our society. But this time, it will be built on a more solid foundation: one that serves everyone, and not just the few at the top.
The full moon eclipse on November 30th is a final energetic purge before Saturn and Jupiter make an intense conjunction at one degree Aquarius on December 21st. For the last 200 years until now, the two planets have been meeting in earth signs. This next conjunction kicks off a new cycle taking place in air signs. To top it off, this conjunction is also the closest these two planes have been in 400 years (this just means there’s a more exacting force between them than usual).
Given that these are slower moving, outer planets, they have a larger effect on global themes, and with them now moving into air signs, specifically Aquarius for the next 20 years, we can start to get a good idea of what those themes are.
“Thus 2020 is at the end of a two-hundred-year era of Jupiter and Saturn uniting in earth signs. While the earth element signifies focus on material security and consolidation of resources that is resistant to change, the era of air will bring disruption to established orders and dramatic changes in collective ideas and the way we communicate. Vitally, not only will Jupiter and Saturn be uniting in Aquarius, they will also be forming a catalytic square aspect with Uranus in Taurus. At this pivotal moment in our journey, the lightning bolts of Jupiter and Uranus will not only bring down old societal structures but will also impel us to release old personal dreams and drama we have been attached to. There will be new challenges and unknown potential arising as we begin a new era of Jupiter and Saturn that we will need to make space for in our lives. During 2020 ask yourself what you need to leave behind and what you truly desire to carry forward.” – Jupiter Conjunct Saturn in Aquarius
Pluto doesn’t kick over into Aquarius until 2024. Saturn heading in for the next two years is laying the groundwork, and this conjunction with Jupiter on the date of the winter solstice is the kickoff party. If you look at the symbolic significance of the winter solstice, it marks the longest night, death, rebirth, and renewal into a new solar year as light begins to become the prevailing force over darkness. Consider it an annual dark night of the soul.
We will look back at what happens between now and the end of January of 2021 as the beginning of a turning point into a new era, on a small scale for the next 20 years, on a larger scale for the next 200, and an even larger scale for the next 4,000. The New Paradigm is here, and we’re about to build it. I plan to write much more in-depth about what that’s going to look like in the real world sometime in the next week, so stay tuned.
In the meantime…
A Message From My Meditation
I had a very informative meditation a few days ago that I shared in the Facebook group and thought I’d share here as well, because it’s very much tied to the energies of 2020:
Earth is in the process of an energetic division right now. Lower energies are splitting off to their own path for further evolution, and higher energies will continue on its own track.
There’s a lot of energy workers incarnate right now with the expressed purpose of anchoring in higher frequencies, and they’re actually strategically located across the planet, creating a sort of living energy grid and that’s helping with the transition at this time.
These are incredibly HUMBLE people that have kept their egos in check. That was emphasized… they wanted souls that would not get sucked into ego traps like being a spiritual influencer, or otherwise having this sort of, “I have spiritual knowledge that you don’t have” kind of mentality, because the people who got heavily caught in the ego trap are taking the lower vibe rout. There’s no judgement behind that at all, it’s viewed from a very neutral perspective, like an energetic choice or preference. So the people we’re talking about here won’t be the type of people to go around proclaiming it, or using spiritual knowledge as a way to puff up their ego. They’re very humble, dedicated, grounded individuals who probably don’t even realize this is why they are here. The ones that run around claiming that they’re special are the ones that got stuck.
In my meditation, I saw this collective as being a “service-to-self” oriented group. People with too much unhealed trauma with no willingness to look at it, people who’ve been unable to cope with this year’s energies in a healthy way and fell into denial and delusion about the world around them, including conspiracy theories and hoaxes. I’m not saying all of them will be taking that path, just the ones with baseline energies that are too heavy to ascend with this higher track of evolution. Those who still have the capacity to awaken and heal won’t miss the boat.
Some of us view this as a time of severe struggle and we’re feeling a lot of anxiety and fear, but that’s only the appearance from the outside. Yes, there’s very heavy energies across earth right now which are being purged, and that’s what you’re feeling that makes you think this is a struggle and that it could potentially fail, but “It’s already done.” (that’s the phrase they used).
Many of us wonder how to save those who are caught up in those lower energies and the answer is you can’t. That’s the path they’ve chosen. Instead, focus on what you can do for yourself and those around you who are receptive to build your new world. There is no more truth to be revealed. It’s all out on the table, so there’s no need to uncover or tear down more. The dominoes have fallen and the collapse is on course. Now is a time for focusing on the future. Where do we go from here? What will we create? How should we go about doing that? Visualize. Brainstorm. Collaborate. Create.
Please keep in mind this is how things are at the 700,000 foot level view. The big themes. It’s not necessarily how it’s going to look down on the ground level where all of that heavy energy is stirred up, so try not to look at this as an invalidation of how you’re feeling right now, but rather, a reassurance than everything is going to be ok.
As several of the tarot readers I watch on YouTube always say, “Everything happens energetically before it’s manifested physically.” The energetic piece is “already done.” We’re just waiting for the dust to settle and the physical manifestation to trickle in.
That whole focusing on the future and what we want to build is the energy behind the upcoming Saturn/Jupiter conjunction in Aquarius. In Tarot terms, we’re at an Ace level at this point, or the Fool. A sea of new potential. Tap into it and use it to your advantage. It will also give you a positive focus in the months ahead as the dust is settling.
